Congress is back in session as of Sept. 10, and one of the important issues they are working on is passing a continuing resolution to keep our government operating. If approved by both chambers, the resolution would fund all federal activities through Mar. 27, 2013. It appears unlikely Congress will approve most annual spending measures either before Election Day or during a November-December lame duck session.
NCBA's Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts discusses what this means for cattlemen and women across the country, and also provides an update on the 2012 Farm Bill.
